for my t.squasmosa

i have it placed bottom right of the tank (120 gallon oceanic RR) under 4x110 VHO and 2x250 10k MH..

also K value is very confuseing because 7200K is what actinics supposedly are but they dont follow the same spectrum.... i just look at it as 6500K = Yellow
7200K = Actinic Blue
10,000K = White/blue
20,000K = Blue/White
50,000K = Blue

my tank can be seen @ www.morelweb.com/demose (these are old photos Sorry)

FYI - Actinic lighting is considered an "infinite K value". The Kelvin scale for lighting max's out at 20,000K.

The 7,200K Actinic came from the old crappy PC actinic which was actually a 7,200K bulb that filtered out everything except for the 450nm light. It was blue but it filtered out 90% of the light and STILL didn't hit the 430nm Actinic range

AS i stated in the post

Actinic Blue is 7200k... doesnt matter who made it the pc's are generally all 7200k actinicblue... NOt Actinic wich would be like a uri ACTINIC bulb or the New Actinic's made for pc... and if you ask me actinic is not blue... its more of a purple but thats my opinion...
